U.S. Food Administration
Figure 1.-- Here is a U.S. Food Administration poster promoting non-wheat breakfast foods.

Wheat used for bread and other food stuffs was the most critical agricultural commodity. Thus it was the commodity given the greatest attention by the USFA. One way of freeing up more wheat to feed the Army and to assist Americ's allies was to reduce domestic wheat consumtion. Here the USFA came up with a range of ideas to use corn and other grains for a range of wheat products.
